Twas the blog before Christmas.....

Phewwww - finished work until 1 February -how wonderful. Spent a gorgeous day at the beach having a long lunch and good solid chit chat with all the girts from CAYHS - a great way to ease into the holidays - finished almost all of my shopping and today just have to make a pavlova, some aoli and off to a festive Christmas eve at Port Willunga - and my gorgeous G had her first proper hair appointment with a cut and colour and blow wave - she is so thrilled and looks lovely -and she declared that 'our' hairdresser( yes she used to be just mine) was awesome. Thanks Marie!!!

Have a safe and happy Christmas wherever you are - and as am I am sure that there are only 2 readers of this blog Happy Christmas to Theresa and Kay - lets sew some more next year

Love Clare

Still here

Work is so busy trying to finish everything on top of Christmas that the nice things in life like sewing and blogging seems to be left out - it is 6.00am and I am trying to organise for tonight's Sew and Sews Christmas party - but a little blog to soothe my conscience - something else to feel guilt about. Made such a quick top this week with lovely Lizzy House Red Letter Day- my goodness the fabrics design themselves - all cut and pieced in one night - very very satisfying - but do I have a photo??? - not yet!!

Sunday Stash

A peak at my latest quilt destined for a Christmas present - lime and raspberry is the best way to describe it - fabric by Patty Young called Mezzanine - I bought in on my recent trip to Robe and had no idea what it was until I did a bit of digging - now I have another favourite designer to
covet - will it never end!!!

Gotta love a poppy!!!
